Sep 17, 2015
The US-based Xigo Nanotools produces and sells measurement and evaluation devices to be used for development and quality control of nanoparticles, materials used in various fields including highly-purified electronic materials and catalysts in the production of semi-conductors and medical and cosmetic products.
In January 2015, the company established Xigo Nanotools Asia in Osaka Prefecture, where their partner has an office, in order to promote sales to Japanese companies.
The company is going to provide explanations and training sessions for its products aimed at its domestic and overseas sales agencies and newly acquired customers, while expanding its sales channels in Japan and Asia.
To assist Xigo Nanotools with its local startup, JETRO’s Invest Japan Business Support Center (IBSC) provided a temporary office and consultation on registration, taxation and personnel management. It also provided necessary introductions for the company to find an office and open a bank account and begin local transactions.
